Hi All

I am stepping through my code and I get to this line:

Set HelpSheet = ThisWorkbook.Sheets(HelpSheetName)

and it gives an error message:

"Run Time error 9 - Subscript out of range".

I have had a look at the help file, but dont really understand it.

Thanks in advance for any help

Kindest Regards

MrExcel MVP,
Hi Peter,

Please re-confirm the variable HelpSheetName.
Does it have a value as string? :)

Option Explicit
Dim TopicCount As Integer
Dim CurrentTopic As Integer
Dim HelpSheet As Worksheet

Const AppName As String = "Clares Automated Pricing System"
Const HelpSheetName As String = "HelpSheet"
Const HelpFormCaption As String = AppName

String value.

Kind Regards

MrExcel MVP,
OK, OK. Your code works in my excel as follows.
...So, PLEASE check the name of the worksheet (HelpSheet),
if any space containd.
Eg,
(HelpSheet )
( HelpSheet)

Code:
Option Explicit
Dim TopicCount As Integer
Dim CurrentTopic As Integer
Dim HelpSheet As Worksheet

Const AppName As String = "Clares Automated Pricing System"
Const HelpSheetName As String = "HelpSheet"
Const HelpFormCaption As String = AppName

Sub test()
    Dim HelpSheet As Worksheet
    Set HelpSheet = ThisWorkbook.Sheets(HelpSheetName)
End Sub

Hi Colo

Thanks for that. I have checked my code with yours. But mine still brings the error up. I have checked and renamed the worksheet to ensure that there are no spaces in the name, either brgining and end!

When you get to the line that bombs out have you checked that the value of HelpSheetName is still "HelpSheet" ?

Just wondering if somewhere esle in the code might be modifying it.

Hi there

When I glide my cursor over the row of code which is highlighted in yellow:

"Set HelpSheet = ThisWorkbook.Sheets(HelpSheetName)"

it display the following text

HelpSheet=Nothing,
ThisWorkbook.Sheets(HelpSheetName) <subscript out of range>
HelpSheetName = "HelpSheet"

Kindest Regards

Hi there

Sorry the previous should have read:

When I glide my cursor over the row of code which is highlighted in yellow:

"Set HelpSheet = ThisWorkbook.Sheets ( HelpSheetName )"

it display the following text

HelpSheet=Nothing,
ThisWorkbook.Sheets(HelpSheetName) <subscript out of range>
HelpSheetName = "HelpSheet"

Kindest Regards

Hi there

Sorry the previous should have read, ok this doesn;t like the less than or greater than brackets which subscript appears in:

When I glide my cursor over the row of code which is highlighted in yellow:

"Set HelpSheet = ThisWorkbook.Sheets ( HelpSheetName )"

it display the following text

HelpSheet=Nothing,
ThisWorkbook.Sheets(HelpSheetName) subscript out of range
HelpSheetName = "HelpSheet"
